Found my first Native American grooved axe!!! Woooot!!
Hit the newest of my fields, the one that produced the points from my last post. Nabbed a broken quartz point and an unknown material broken tipped blade. On my way out heading back to the car I saw just a small knob of reddish stone sticking out, I hooked it with my rake and pulled a bit and saw the groove! I lost it, happy dance, hootin and hollerin.... My first axe ever! It's about 6" long and 3.5 inches wide. Found in Southern NJ...

That's a sweet find! That's a deep groove, wonder how long it took to etch that groove in the rock?

Thx everyone for the kind words. I'm so stoked about it, I've shown everyone I've seen tonight lol. Now I can't wait to get back out there, been finding few points, lotta flakes, and today it was seeming like the field was drying up with finds. Good news is we have rain coming the next 2 days, so I'm in it to win it this week for sure!

I remember my first one. Unforgettable.
I sat right down and let the antiquity sink in. It took a while.

"You ask where I live. I cannot tell you. I am a Voyageur, a Chicot, sir. I live everywhere. My grandfather was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."
